Pink Slime is not the worst of it...
Pink slime may be the latest media sensation, but it is far from the worst that occurs to not just meat, but all food.

Pink Slime is just the beginning.
Most store honey is fake.
Will Eating Red Meat Really Kill You?
Fluoride burns a hole in concrete.
Forget wax coatings, how about virus?
Why does PepSi taste so good? Aborted babies.
Does tap water really look like this?
GMO corn creates massive tumors in rats.
Which is healthier for your baby? Corn syrup solids or soy protein? Maybe some beetle, too!

These are just a few, I thought I would share them.

RE: Pink Slime is not the worst of it...
Thanks for the info, Anarchist. Hopefully the rest of us can learn from this example of what happens when one expects a government to lead itself responsibly.

One quote I found particularly useful:

http://www.marksdailyapple.com/will-eating-red-meat-kill-you/ Wrote:let’s address an important caveat that the media—and even the researchers, unless they were terribly misquoted—seem to be confused about. What we’ve got here is a garden-variety observational study, not an actual experiment where people change something specific they’re doing and thus make it possible to determine cause and effect. Observations are only the first step of the scientific method—a good place to start, but never the place to end. These studies don’t exist to generate health advice, but to spark hypotheses that can be tested and replicated in a controlled setting so we can figure out what’s really going on. Trying to find “proof” in an observational study is like trying to make a penguin lactate. It just ain’t happening… ever.

There's quite a bit of research posted to dig through, but it almost seems as though there are more observational studies than clinical (or "experimental" as noted in the quote above).

It's not just officials that have little or lack of concern for people, but many researchers and "journalists". Placing one's lust for money over the welfare of people has such a result.
Truth appears in many forms. Find those that resonate with you.

RE: Pink Slime is not the worst of it...
I agree completely, thokling. And something I always tell these "red meat will kill you!" people, is that their studies are false. They use factory farmed poison meat that will indeed kill you. But if I took a study of conventionally grown GMO veggies, and fed people a vegetarian/vegan diet, then saw their health decline, I could claim vegetarian/vegan eating, and veggies in general, would kill you. It is all skewed, and they just keep buying studies. In the end, there is no one to protect us, only ourselves. Relying on a government or group to protect you is to abnegate your right of protection, and set yourself up to be fooled and duped.

RE: Pink Slime is not the worst of it...
Thanks, Anarchist. Some great material here, and while I doubt I'll read it all (let's call it a 'preaching to the converted' type thing), I am happy to see the post. For whatever reason, I find the industry control over food to be one of the most depressing elements of our current state of being. From the treatment of livestock, to the treatment of workers, to the perpetual compromise on what constitutes 'suitability for human consumption'; the whole system is backward, and, in my mind, truly evil. I am honestly less saddened by the thought of bankers manipulating billions out of the pockets of the 99% than I am when I think about unsuspecting parents literally pumping their children full of toxic waste while thinking they are doing right by them - don't get me wrong, financial tyranny has me ANGRY as hell, but the food stuff really makes me depressed. Just as with anything, I do think that it is ultimately up to us to educate ourselves - we should know what we're putting into our (and our families') bodies - but my heart really does go out to all of those who are mistakenly convinced that they're doing a good thing.

I do, however, have a great deal of hope and I think that precisely *because* food is such an essential element of our humanity that we will see a positive shift before too long. People don't like it when they're lied to about what they're eating - look at how far the industry has already had to bend just to give people an idea (mandatory nutritional info and ingredients on every package). I would say that it is safe to say that thanks to the publishing of articles such as those posted by Anarchist, and to publicity about these issues thanks to folks like Jamie Oliver, people will quickly realize that they've not only been lied to, but have been MALICIOUSLY lied to, and won't stand for it (Read: this is about MORE than simply maximizing profits for Big-food; it's about keeping a population in a state of ill-health, cloudy-mindedness and dis-ease). I also think that having the lid blown off the food industry/government complacency might help people to realize that the corporate/government marriage might ALSO be lying to them about other things and will ultimately be yet another vehicle for a shift in consciousness and a progressive step forward.

RE: Pink Slime is not the worst of it...
I agree to an extent, stanzela. While I do not think there will be any mass conscious awakening, it is important to try. It makes me really mad that all the food is poison. They spray it with pesticides (which have a main ingredient of fluoride), they give it [fluoridated] water, pick it before its ready. I read an article a while back on how they inject the fruit that is out of season with chemicals to make it have colour, but I could not find it or any like it. If I do, I will edit my first post with it. They also cover our food with wax, maybe virus coat it as a food vaccine...

Irradiating it is fun. Then of course, you buy it in a box it has preservatives, a can has preservatives and BPA. Never mind the GMO foods, which eat your organs.

So, you rent some land or till your back yard, you read up on permaculture and organic farming and the like, and you get to it. Everything is fine as you plant in organic dirt and use river water. Wiping your brow, you sigh a sigh of relief. You look up and see... Oh, darn it. There they go, spraying chemtrails. Looks like your food absorbs that, too. Anyone have a biodome?

It is really sad all of this is being done, and parents think they are doing good. Especially formula, which is about the worst think one could give a child. Some doctors even say breast milk is just as effective, if not less, than formula!
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/6942427/Breastmilk-no-better-for-baby-than-formula-scientist-claims.html
Can always rely on LA Times to do a good hit piece. Oh, and do not forget to mix that healthy formula with water... fluoridated water!
http://www.naturalnews.com/031892_fluoride_corrosive.html
I do not pity the people working at the factory farms. Maybe I am desensitised, but last I checked they can change careers. I pity the animals who are tortured all their life, and slaughtered in such a cruel manner. Anyone who hunts knows you try to kill the animal instantly. Those malevolent, degenerate, warped people who torture a cow hanging by a rope deserve death by my book.

That is my little response, I will add some of these links up top.

I try not to worry so much about the chemtrail stuff. I know ignorance is bliss but I also just know that if I have to start worrying about fluoride and other toxins in my farmer's market and homegrown produce, ON TOP of all of the other bull-ish I have to worry about from day to day, I'll die of some strange aneurism or heart-attack from all of the stress. I'm just happy to be aware enough not to consume the poisonous; processed or factory(torture)-farmed garbage that lines the shelves of most large-scale grocery stores.

Anyhow, I'm getting awfully close to to sounding like a hypocrite, especially after going on about how sad it all made me... I guess what I am trying to get at is that being able to own a plot of land, produce some crops and harvest them is an AMAZING thing and I would hate to see a bout of pessimism-turned-fatalism regarding chemtrails prevent someone from taking a shot at it (provided that it was within their means and of their desire to do so). In my opinion, if we're to escape the clutches of big-food tyranny, people will need to reconnect with the sources of their sustenance whether through producing for themselves and their community or through simply familiarizing themselves with the processes involved in moving 'food' from farm to table. With that in mind, I think it should be encouraged that people try to learn these skills and techniques, rather than dwell on the futility of it all in a chemtral-filled world. After all, the earth will continue growing its fruits long after any ignorant, chemical-spraying agents are able to attempt to control it rather than work with it.

RE: Pink Slime is not the worst of it...
Agreed completely. You do not sound like a hypocrite to me, as I know what you mean. The point I was making was to point out it is simply impossible to completely escape, but going organic, and especially freshly grown, is a huge plus. We have been dealt cards, and chemtrails is one we cannot get rid of. Maybe if we set up a 24/7 watch with a group on high powered anti-air turrets? We will all die, that is the sad truth. With that stated, the best we can do is live our lives in a way that satisfies ourselves, and live as healthy as possible. If one can get some land and produce plenty of food, that will go a long ways, and should not be looked on pessimistic or dismissed since it is not utopia. Thanks for the post.

RE: Pink Slime is not the worst of it...
When you get right down to it, we're all living in a toxic soup, and there's only so much we can do to protect ourselves. The food we eat, the water from our tap, the air we breathe, the clothes we wear, the plastics we store things in...

I get fresh eggs from the chickens in my back yard, and buy local & organic when I can. But I still drink city tap water and breathe some of the worst air in the country. We pick and choose our battles.

Ultimately, these individual choices we make aren't going to solve much. We need to organize to dismantle the corporations that have hijacked our food supply and poisoned our planet. But it'll be a long road, so I guess stay as healthy as you can in the meantime!

RE: Pink Slime is not the worst of it...
Distill the water then add in what YOU want it to contain. Yes we can not control all variables but I aim for everyone that I can. That includes ALL household chemicals, not many people mention that one as indoor air is usually worse than outside. With a good air-con filter we also help to st least have clean air to breathe at home to counteract the chemtrails outside.

RE: Pink Slime is not the worst of it...
Agreed nwo2012. Most people do not realise that, but it is rather inexpensive to install a good air filter. Actually, most people do not even replace the filters installed in the duct work, or so I am told. A lot cheaper than a full house reverse-osmosis water filtration system to counteract fluoride. I hate the chemical air "fresheners", when I breathe that garbage, I choke. No one else does, but I cannot stand it. Same for fabric cleaning garbage. I do not wash my clothes or sheets or anything with any chemical detergent. The last time I did my bed sheets, I could not sleep well for a week because the smell was nasty. Now, the natural products do not bug me near as much, and I do not have allergies or chemical sensitivities to these products, I just dislike them. Personally, give me pesticide and fluoride over chemical cleaners and fresheners.

Hey operatorkos! I have seen you commenting around, and how rude of me not to greet one of our newest members. I agree completely with you on us living in a toxic "soup". Like I posted above a few posts, no matter what we do, they have so many poisons that nothing short of going to a new planet would get us away. All the nuke testings they did in the 20th century (2056? If you count NK I think it is 2058) made permanent background radiation, so even that lovely abandoned island I am sure most of us dream[ed] about would not be completely free of poison. Such a shame, though I still fancy such a vision. Alas, like nwo2012 said:
Quote:Yes we can not control all variables but I aim for everyone that I can.
If we fret about controlling everything, we will only go insane as we realise our helplessness. Sadly, there are some things we as individuals cannot and will not be able to control. Who knows, maybe we can take down this system. Personally I do not believe we can. Then again, what harm is there in trying? In the end, we can control ourselves and our surroundings to an extent, and whatever we can do to keep ourselves healthier, the better.

Do they ever reach a point of peak sickness? Just when one thinks it could not get more demented and twisted, somehow "they" find a way to do it. Absolutely amazing... Time to update the list.
